The kind of lawyer I am…
Before becoming a lawyer I owned and operated several small businesses and worked in management and customer service for one of the world’s largest shipping and delivery companies. With a strong business background, I take a “business first, law second” approach, meaning that I make sure I thoroughly understand my client’s business objectives and use the “law” as a tool to make my client’s business objectives a reality.
Whether you need me to negotiate a dispute, draft legal documents, conduct a workplace investigation, or advise you on a business or employment legal matter, I will work hard for you and use my best efforts to achieve your desired business outcome.

Before becoming a lawyer I owned and operated several small businesses and worked in management for one of the world’s largest shipping and delivery companies. I loved running and managing businesses; in particular, I enjoy figuring out all the intricacies and overcoming the challenges inherent in creating a successful business.
Then I became a lawyer…
I graduated from the University of Oregon School of Law in 1998 and worked for a large law firm in Portland before opening Business Law Centre in 1999. In 2008, I moved Business Law Centre to its new location to better serve its clients.
My other professional and civic activities. . .
In 2012, I was appointed by the Eugene City Council to serve as a citizen member of the Eugene Budget Committee for a three year term. I also served as a member of the faculty at the University of Oregon School of Law from 2004 to 2010 as the Director of its Small Business Clinic.
